Cops, 1960s style!
In this riveting docu-drama, we follow the new Orleans police as they deal with mentally disturbed people. The first half of the movie is the most amazing, with great acting, amazing editing and razor sharp camerawork. The second half somewhat slows down, but provides a nice flow after the intense first half. Reccomended.
